The pond itself is absolutely beautiful, the trail however was super muddy and completely flooded at times. Also super buggy. I’ll probably do the trail again because of how beautiful the pond is but I’ll wear hiking boots instead of sneakers

Trail markings were nonexistent. But the lake was beautiful.

I gave it 3 stars only because it is fall and the scenery was nice. Otherwise, very wet, with lots of large puddles! The view of pond was ok.

I’ve hiked this trail many times, never ran into anyone. If you want a trail that you can enjoy, be alone, and end at a beautiful lake, this is the spot.

Great hike w a beautiful lake at the end. Went in December and was completely ice and snow covered but was still a fun hike.

One other point to add: Neither of the two trails is labeled. The Wallingford Pond trail has no sign. The Little Rocks Pond trail has a snowmobile sign.

The map on the site is incorrect, it will take you to Little Rock Pond (also very nice). The Wallingford pond trail is to the left of the Little Rock trail and is a very easy and wide 3 mile loop. There is a clearing at the end of the trail next to the pond which is beautiful.
